Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward’s assault hearing pushed to August

Tuesday July 22nd, 2014

Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward's assault hearing has been delayed until Aug. 4, the Associated Press reports.

Ward had a warrant out for his arrest after an incident at Denver's PT's All Nude Club in May. Ward is accused of throwing a glass mug at a female bartender when he was asked to dispose of a bottle he brought into the club.

The 27-year-old appeared in a Denver courtroom Tuesday, but his attorney asked for more time because of new evidence.

Ward signed a four-year, $22.5 million deal with the Broncos during the offseason.
